|Leonard Nimoy, lost 1967 TV interview - KGW-TV|
A lost interview from 1967 conducted by KGW-TV, a news station in Portland, Oregon. This was rediscovered in 2010 in their film archives. Nimoy talks at length about playing Mr. Spock on "Star Trek", then in its second season. Unfortunately, he does not shed any light on what compelled him to record "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins".

|The Vampira Show - rare 1954 television clips|
As the ghoulish and campy Vampira, pin-up model Maila Nurmi was television's first horror hostess in 1954-55. No film of her shows exist except for a rare promotional kinescope re-creating her famous entrance and some of her macabre comedy segments. Here are two brief bits also seen in the 2006 documentary "Vampira: The Movie". In the second bit there is a slight glitch during her punchline: 'Everyone knows electricity is for chairs." She went on to do small roles in a few B pictures including E...

|1954 ''I Married Joan'' - ''The Clothes Budget' - (NBC-TV, Light Comedy)|
A 1954 episode of the NBC Television Network sitcom "I Married Joan" entitled "The Clothes Budget". Possibly the most jumpy, confusing, and at times sloppy episode of this series, though it's still funny. The series is very similar to "I Love Lucy" (1951-1957), which itself is similar to "Mary Kay and Johnny" (1947-1950). A moderate success, it lasted 3 seasons but never made the Top 20. Annoyingly, this is an edited print.

An 1940's episode of "Howdy Doody", I think this is from March 1949. This episode is complete with NBC-TV Promo, and two NBC-TV IDs. This program features music, comedy, and the infamous "re-purposed" silent film clip. All of this adds up to an entertaining half hour.

Introducing the 1967 Dodge Dart GT, a sleek compact convertible. Amazing how sporty and cool this looked back in the '60s. Sadly, by the '70s just about everything cool from the '60s was revamped and ruined. In 1973 my parents bought a new Dart, and it was the most boring conservative car imaginable. Thank you, Chrysler motors. Pamela Austin, the perky spokesperson, was the "Dodge Rebellion Gal" in over a dozen television ads from 1966 and 1967...

This TV commercial appears in context as it was originally broadcast in 1963. We begin with a station identification for the ABC show "Channing" which then leads into the Bufferin ad. Then a brief fade-in to the program. This was back in the days when an ad break was only 60 seconds. Time for one commercial or two short ones. A one-hour program was 55 minutes with 5 minutes of ads. Today you get 45 minutes of show and 15 minutes of ads...

Four television commercials featuring popular actress Teri Garr. The first three are from the ealy '70s before she became a star. The last one is from the mid-'90s.
